Investors in People Gold Award

Investors in People Gold Award

Investors in people set the standard for people management.

This standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people for sustained success, whatever the industry Investors in people accredited organisations are exemplars in people management. Investors in people set the bar when it comes to leadership and management of all staff in any industry.

In 2014 the James Hornsby School was awarded the Investors in People Gold award. An award rarely bestowed upon schools. This award demonstrates the quality of professional development the James Hornsby School has to offer to all staff. In 2017 the school maintained its status and IIP had the following to say about us:


“There is an amount of challenge and people being busy that brings stimulation and drives positive emotion.”

“Staff … strongly believe James Hornsby is a great place to work”

“Success is emphasised and celebrated. People know what success looks like.”

“There appears to be an excellent work/life balance ethos”
